A yearlong project aimed at creating sustainability for Christian communities in the Near East.
Announcement and Panel
What is AMC?
Abraham’s Missing Child Initiative is a series of 3 convenings in 3 countries over the course of 12 months, at which Near Eastern Christian leaders will gather with Israeli Jews and Arab Muslims to discuss practical ways to strengthen indigenous Christian communities in the region. This innovative and groundbreaking approach to the age-old question of minorities of the region is redefining the way that Muslims, Christians, and Jews can work together.
On May 24th, the Philos Project announced Abrahams Missing Child at the Line DC hotel in Washington DC. In addition to being joined by Greek Ambassador Alexandra Papadopoulou and Cyprus Ambassador Marios Lysiotis, we were honored to host representatives from the Embassy of the Kingdom of Bahrain, Embassy of the Kingdom of Jordan, Embassy of Morrocco, and Embassy of the United Arab Emirates.
Summit 1: Christian gathering in Athens, Greece
The Philos Project gathered eleven Eastern Christians from the Near East in Athens, Greece in October to begin discussing the major issues their respective communities face and tangible solutions for each issue. We were able to walk away with a short list of recommendations aimed at building sustainability for Arab Christians in Egypt, Lebanon, Jordan, Syria, Israel, and beyond.
The next step of AMC is Summit II, where Eastern Christians will be gathering with their Muslim and Jewish allies to discuss the recommendations they were able to come up with in Athens. More to come on this soon!
